$2.5M Upgrade Underway at Marquis Health Services Skilled Nursing Facility

NEPTUNE CITY, N.J., – Neptune City Mayor Robert Brown recently visited Coral Harbor Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center to view the early progress of a $2.5 million upgrade at the local skilled nursing property. Marquis Health Services, which purchased Coral Harbor earlier this year, is fully modernizing the environment and enhancing services at the 110-bed facility formerly named Medicenter Rehabilitation & Nursing.

The improvements center on creating a modern, home-like atmosphere for residents and staff. On the long-term care floor, this includes a complete overhaul of common areas and patient rooms – including private showers, updated flooring, wallpaper, artwork and the installation of flat-screen TVs. Marquis Health Services is also creating subacute rehabilitation suites as part of the renovation effort.

The firm will construct a new therapy gym with state-of-the-art equipment. A smart car will be incorporated to help patients simulate actual daily living skills during the rehabilitation process. Marquis Health Services will also renovate the building’s dining room, public spaces and elevators; add a gourmet coffee lounge; and improve the grounds with general landscaping upgrades and a resurfaced parking lot. New specialty cardiac and pulmonary rehabilitation programs will operate seven days per week; Marquis Health Services is incorporating piped-in oxygen to enhance its pulmonary care services. Free WiFi will be installed for residents and guests as part of an upgrade of the property’s data-related IT and networking equipment.

“It was a pleasure to visit Coral Harbor Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center,” Mayor Brown said. “I enjoyed meeting both Norman Rokeach, CEO of Marquis Health Services, and the Coral Harbor management team. It was great to learn of the investment being made into our local community in the form of subacute rehabilitation and long-term care services. I am very pleased to welcome this new provider to Neptune City.”

Coral Harbor is located at 2050 6th Ave., directly across the street from Jersey Shore University Medical Center. “Coral Harbor’s proximity to the hospital is a terrific advantage,” Rokeach noted. “Jersey Shore University Medical Center is home to a number of specialized programs and is recognized as one of the best in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.”

The property is also located just 15 minutes from Marquis Health Services’ headquarters in Brick, N.J. That local corporate support and the renovation project position Coral Harbor to become a market leader, according to Rokeach. “Our long-time existing relationships within the regional healthcare community will be instrumental in achieving our goal to provide a flagship skilled nursing option for area residents,” he said. “We are bundling a first-class environment here with our trademark customer service and outstanding patient care.”
